J.M. Coetzee is the Steven Cohen of the literary world

I stopped reading him before ‘Disgrace’. Then I found his first book ‘Dusklands’. The level of misanthropy is astounding. He delights in the indignity of people, in the baseness. It is not “…the horror, the horror…” which some ascribe to him.

Therefore, he is similar to Steven Cohen the performing artist who takes this mockery of the human beings to scary physical heights. Good luck to them both.
